Make sure that your kids are "Fire Smart!"

October is Fire Prevention Month. Please take some time out to remind kids how to be “fire smart.”

This super Web site is just the thing to help you teach elementary-age kids the basics of fire safety and prevention. The “Where’s the Fire?” five-minute online video covers all the basics in an entertaining way.

The library has some great fire safety resources to offer, as well!

Stop, Drop, and Roll and Fire Safety are both great books that teach kids about fire safety. The Big Red DVD, suitable for kids ages 2-8, takes a "fireman's view" and features fire trucks and fire safety lessons along the way. The Fire Busters DVD includes fire helicopters, planes, boats, and trucks.

The library also has plenty of wonderful picture books featuring fire trucks and firefighters. Check some out, and get fire smart!
